Are You an Engineer Engaged in the Construction Field?

The Florida Engineers in Construction (FECON) is one of the five practice sections of the Florida Engineering Society representing those members who are engaged in construction or design/construction, or an FES member whose interest is primarily in the construction field. FECON provides:

  • An effective forum for discussion and action on problems of common interest to engineers employed or engaged in construction or in design construction.
  • An opportunity to strengthen the role of the engineer in construction.
  • A way to promote better engineer-construction management relationships.
  • An opportunity to augment your firm’s business development initiatives.

Means of communication and liaison with engineers in other practice sections of FES and with other similar state sections.

  • Richard L. Johnson, PE, Chair
  • Eric M. Jimenez, PE, Vice Chair
  • Vienna Freeman, Secretary
  • Ann McNeill, Treasurer
  • Meredith Montgomery, Staff Liaison

The Florida Engineers in Construction Individual Excellence Award (IEA) is presented to the nominated professional who has made the most outstanding contribution to the advancement, improvement and accelerated awareness of how engineers shall protect, defend and maintain the safety and welfare of the public.

The final selection for the state award will be made by the FECON Administrative Committee based on the professional’s current and longtime reputation under consideration, with particular emphasis on the preceding twelve months.

For purposes of this program, a “professional” is any professional design engineer, program manager, field engineer, construction supervisor, public representative, or any primary function of engaging construction of physical facilities, infrastructure, or other improvements.
